To the casual observer, the purchase of a stethoscope may seem no different from buying a pair of practical work shoes. Any pair will do, as long as they're comfortable. But a stethoscope is so much more. Doctors and nurses rely on them constantly, Sprague-Rappaport Stethoscope  so it's well worth doing some careful investigating before making a choice. And there have never been more stethoscopes to choose from.
Every stethoscope shares some basic features: a chest piece, earpieces and tubing. It’s the attention to detail given each of these that accounts for the wide range of quality and price. The chest piece is made of the diaphragm (for high frequencies) and the bell (for low frequencies). Dual-head chestpieces have the diaphragm on one side and the bell on the other. Single-head chestpieces have both the diaphragm and bell on one side and depend on pressure to detect different frequencies. The tubing is essentially the same in most stethoscopes. What's really important is the length: not because shorter tubing allows you to hear better (it doesn't), Sprague-Rappaport Stethoscope but because longer tubing enables you to avoid bending over patients, to keep sick patients at arm's length, and to drape the stethoscope around your neck without slipping off. Standard lengths are 22 inches to 28 inches.
